Wow.
Marvel's art is either so generic its forgettable, or so stylized it just doesnt fit the character.
Makes one long for the days of a 'house style'.

General Comic Discussion / Crosswind, new series

Read the first 2 issues, not expecting much, and was instead pleasantly surprised.
The art is beautiful, and the writing is tight. The story itself feels more like it should be a movie. It caught my interest for sure.

is Superman an atheist, or is the context really important here?

Someone taking a stone into hiding sounds interesting. Having the locations in known (yet well protected) places didn't work out so great.
Yeah that works both in story and out.

Thanks, bro.

It's just kinda weird that he can take on magic attacks then when it comes to vamps or werewolves, things drastically change.

He even confronts the 4 Primal Elementals of Earth, tells them he would kick their collective asses if they don't stop their malevolent activities and the 4 Elementals whimpered away.... then when it comes to vampires... "Oh, shit! I'm weak against vampires!"

Seriously, Clark WTF? You stopped 4 elemental beings and threatened them unless they stop but when it comes to werewolves or vamps, you suddenly remember you are weak against magic???  ::)
Heh, nicely put.
Calling out the MoS.

I was 9. House show in San Jose, CA. I marked out hard...for Dustin Rhodes. Like, got a picture with him and everything. In fact, we were there so I could see HIM. I pretty much skipped watching the Sting v. Cactus Jack "Falls Anywhere" match (that went into the stands) so I could talk to him. Hindsight, it was pretty cool that he took the time to talk to a dumb-shit kid for awhile.

My mom, bless her heart, ended up talking with Abdullah The Butcher for like, 30 minutes, swapping cooking recipes LOL.
That's pretty fucking incredible, really!

It's because DC can't make up shit in their mind about Superman even post Jeph Loeb/Joe Kelly.

One minute a vamp is giving him trouble although he could so burn it easily being a sungod or some suntan thing but noooo.... he gets crapped.... then there is him tanking a magical blast that obliterates the JLA and he kicks this sudo-god's ass. The guy has been cut by a magical blade, struck down by a magical arrow in the chest yet still survives and defeat these god hunters... then there is again... vampires.
Then there is him taking Etrigan's hellfire with no scratches, fights thousands of demons physically then again... vampires. He defeats Jackie Estocado (Darkness).... then again vampires. ::)

I'm now thinking it must be psychological effect  due to his upbringing than a real physical weakness.
That last is an interesting theory. Never seen that posited before that I recall.

Not a big loss for the show. Wasn't a huge fan of the character
I kinda liked him.
Wonder if he got a better project. I wonder sometimes at ppl leaving a steady gig, and then disappearing.
Anyhow, with him and HR (and Caitlin and Barry) gone, team Flash is looking pretty lean.

Did they ever explain why he is extra vulnerable to magic?
He's not "extra" vulnerable, he just has no resistance, like most people/characters.
I've argued this since 2000, and yet most debates morph into 'weak to magic' if they dont just start there to begin with.
I dont even bother any more.
